Niemann, who turns 30 next month, will earn $3 million the team announced Friday. The 32-year-old Roberts received $2.95 million plus incentives. Joyce gets $2.45 million and Fuld will earn $725,000.

The 31-year-old Fuld batted .255 with seven stolen bases and 14 runs scored after missing the first 96 games of last season while recovering from surgery to repair ligaments in his right wrist. The 28-year-old Joyce had 17 homeruns, 59 RBIs and a career-high 55 walks.

Niemann was 2-3 with a 3.08 ERA in eight starts. Roberts hit 12 homers with 52 RBIs for the Rays and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
